AMD Ryzen CPU details leak

Details for AMD's upcoming Ryzen CPUs have been leaked, revealing self-overclocking functionality which scales with your CPUs cooling solution.
These leaked slides come from Videocardz, showing that AMD's upcoming 8-core, 16-thread Zen-based Ryzen CPU has clock speeds of 3.4GHz and above, 20MB of L2+L3 cache and a smarter Prefetch than the previous generation AMD CPUs.  
These clock speeds are higher than the previously rumoured specification for Zen's flagship and a distinct improvement from the 3GHz model showcased by the company earlier this year.
In AMD's internal testing, which they showcased to the world in August of this year, they clocked both their 8-core Zen CPU and Intel's 8-core i7 6900K at 3.0GHz and ran the same render on Blender. The results of this test shown us that their new Zen-based CPU had a slight performance lead over Intel's equivalent when ran at the same clock speeds.

AMD wants to reward those that use "enthusiast cooling" solutions, creating what they call Extended Frequency Range (XFR), which allows AMD's Ryzen CPUs to use enhanced clock speeds which move beyond Zen's traditional clock speed limits without the need for users to manually overclock their CPUs. 

This effectively allows AMD's Ryzen CPUs to overclock themselves when using aftermarket cooling solutions, though at this time we do not know how high AMD's Ryzen CPUs will overclock, either automatically through XFR or manually using traditional methods.

AMD has designed their Ryzen CPUs to be smarter and more refined than their previous generation CPUs, with an increased focus on energy efficiency, clock speed control and smarter caching, allowing Zen CPUs to offer enhanced performance with lower power consumption than its previous generation equivalents. 

Zen will certainly not be as power hungry as Bulldozer, though at this time we do not know how well these CPUs will compare to Intel's Broadwell-E and Skylake/Kaby Lake CPUs.

AMD will be hosting their New Horizon Event later today ay 9pm GMT, where AMD is expected to reveal more official information on Zen as well as demo their new CPU architecture live on stage.

really hope this is true data Quote

I'm wondering what the boost clock speeds are like. The base clock speeds of the i7 6900K are 3.2GHz, giving this a higher base clock speed.

The boost of the i7 6900k is 3.7, so if AMD's CPU can maintain boosts of 3.7+ AMD are onto a real winner. I'm excited to see how this performs.Quote

3.4Ghz is pretty decent. 20MB of L3 cache is very good too.Quote

Intredasting. With that many cores it'll certainly be decent for video workloads, but I still have my doubts about gaming performance. It seems that their IPC is still way behind Intel. (Their slides promised 40% increaseover Bulldozer iirc)Quote
